Samsung launched the wireless headphone via the AKG brand, dubbed the AKG N400, to compete with its other Galaxy Buds.
Owned by AKG, Samsung
one of the leading brands in developing audio devices globally. The new speaker adds noise or noise cancellation, unlike the Galaxy Buds headset,
The AKG N400 features a battery that lasts up to 5 hours on a single charge,
can increase to 6 hours when noise cancellation is turned off,
and also supports wireless charging technology. They come in three colors:
Samsung launched the Galaxy Buds + headset with the launch of the Galaxy S10 series more than a month ago and made it available at a price of $ 150.
The company said at the time that it was developed with AKG audio technologies.
But now she has decided to launch a new speaker from her acoustics brand that comes with the noise isolation feature that was not available on her first handset.
When Samsung launched the Galaxy Bus + wireless speaker,
it said that it preferred to put a large battery in it instead of adding the noise-canceling feature,
as it continues to work on one charge until 11 hours by playing audio files,
but now it decided to add the noise-canceling feature at the expense of the battery size,
to provide options Different for users.
Samsung AKG N400
The new AKG N400 wireless headset launches today with a design that mimics the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus version,
but the AKG N400 headset comes with noise-canceling support with a water resistance feature,
which is a feature that has been absent from the Samsung version.
The AKG N400 wireless headset has a 30% higher pricing level than the Samsung version, and less than the Apple AirPods Pro version,
and also has 8.2 mm drives,
and is provided with a variety of speaker ends that are compatible with users.
The AKG N400 supports
up to 6 hours of charging life,
or 5 hours with ANC feature enabled,
the headphone case also provides an additional 6 hours of music playback,
the earphone can also be charged for a period of 10 minutes
for a lifetime of approximately one hour, and the charging case also supports charging wireless.
The noise-canceling feature of the AKG N400 also supports two microphones for each side of the speaker,
with clear audio in the headphone without interference,
the noise cancellation level can also be set through the Ambient Aware application for smartphones,
and you can also click on the left side of the headphone to turn on the feature To listen to the user’s surroundings.
the right side of the speaker supports skipping music tracks, as well as receiving calls when clicking, and reducing the volume of audio by swiping on the right side of the speaker.
the AKG N400 can support receiving voice commands via Bixby, Siri or Google Digital Assistant,
and the AKG N400 supports IPX7 water resistance standards, as it can continue to operate when exposed to water for 30 minutes at a depth of one meter,
so it can support use in the rain or when you are sweating,
the N400 headphone starts at $ 190 and is available in blue, silver, and black colors.
According to the product page,
a single charge yields 12 hours of playtime with noise-canceling on. If this proves true,
the AKG N400 earbuds will have some of the best battery life among the true wireless competition.
Fast and Qi wireless charging are both supported by the case. Just 10 minutes of quick charging supplies one hour of playtime.
The earbuds take on a vaguely familiar shape with stout wingtips and rounded housings. AKG uses touch panels on its earphones which may be used to toggle noise cancellation on or off,
cycle through listening modes,
access your favorite virtual assistant including Siri and Google Assistant,
and control playback. Spotify integration isn’t mentioned with the AKG N400,
so for that, you’ll have to pick up the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus.
The AKG N400 earbuds are available in black,
blue, and silver. As of March 30, 2020,
they only appear on Samsung Korea’s website and cost approximately $187.
Now comes a new AKG N400 earbuds from Samsung’s own subsidiary. It’s definitely no Galaxy Buds in design but it does have the two features that people have been clamoring for.
It even has its own app that lets you control active noise cancellation as well as touch controls. The IPX7 water resistance rating means it’ll survive your sweat and a light rain shower.
Aside from that, the earbuds boast of Bluetooth 5.0,
SBC and AAC codecs support, and a battery life of 6 hours,
5 with ANC turned on.
The case gives an additional 6 hours charge and itself can be charged via USB-C or wireless charging pads.
That case looks a tad bulkier than their Galaxy Buds+ counterparts but consumers might be more forgiving in that regard.
